This project is the first phase of the larger planned SR24 Corridor Improvements that will improve the roadway operations along SR24, John J. Williams Highway from Love Creek to SR1. This project will widen SR24 to facilitate the continuation of the existing four lane section with center turn lane from SR 1 to west of Plantation Road. The improvements will then reduce back to the existing roadway section where the second phase of the SR24 corridor improvements will continue the widening. The project will also provide intersection improvements at SR24 and Plantation Road by adding a thru/left turn lane in both directions of Plantation Road. Stormwater management and multi-modal facilities will be installed throughout the project limits. The project will require utility relocations, some of these relocations may occur in advance of the project.
The project is located along the SR24 corridor, between Mulberry Knoll Road and SR1. The approximate limits stretch along SR 24 from 1000 feet northeast of Mulberry Knoll Road to SR 1, including improvements of approximately 1000 feet along both Warrington and Plantation roads.
The SR 24 Corridor is one of the few major east/west connector roads for local and beach traffic moving across the state. There are multiple Highway Safety Improvement (HSIP) sites throughout the corridor, as is with the section included in this project. The massive growth in permanent residents and beach goers alike has degraded the level of service to unacceptable levels and as such the Department is committed to improving the roadway facilities.
